Straighten a whole set of teeth with no unsightly wires or bars
Invisalign® straightens whole arches of teeth using custom-made aligners, like clear gumshields, rather than metal braces. These fit perfectly over your teeth and the great thing is that most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them, unless you tell them! You can talk, smile and socialise as normal but still have the benefits of a fixed brace.
How Invisalign® works
Invisalign® works by applying constant, precise pressure on each tooth to produce the desired movement. You must wear the aligners throughout the day and night, only removing them for eating and cleaning. Every 2 weeks, you switch to a new set of aligners, which has a shape closer to your end goal.
See the predicted end result before treatment begins
Invisalign® allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you even begin treatment, so you can see how your teeth are predicted to look when your treatment is complete. A DVD simulation shows each of the predicted tooth movements until the end result is reached.
Is Invisalign® for me?
Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign® could help. It can successfully treat overly crowded teeth at one extreme or widely spaced teeth at the other. It can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, underbites and even crossbites.
In fact, we can use Invisalign in all or part of just about any treatment plan. For cases of minor crowding of the front 4 teeth only, the Inman™ ‘Speed Brace’ may be a better option – this will be assessed at your £30 Straightening Consultation with Dr Grant.
